Charitable Status

The High School of Dundee is a Registered Charity regulated by the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR), Scottish Charity Number SC011522.

Regulation for charities was introduced in 2005, and shortly after OSCR started the process of reviewing each charity in Scotland to ensure they meet the requirements for charitable status. In July 2007, the High School of Dundee was the first school in the UK to retain its charitable status following a review by OSCR.

The High School is a not-for-profit organization, which means that all of its income is invested back into the School for the benefit of its pupils.  As a charity, it is able to provide financial assistance to support those pupils who without that help may otherwise be unable to attend, and in total, we allocate around £1m per annum in this way.
